The Basics

The Corniche is a popular area for family recreation. On warm, sunny days, snag a spot under an umbrella at Corniche Beach at either the public, family, or singles entrances, and cool off with a plunge in the designated swimming area.

In the evenings, you can join locals strolling along the well-paved promenade or sit in one of the landscaped parks and gardens scattered along the way. Be sure to bring your camera, as the Corniche offers spectacular views of Abu Dhabi’s skyline and unobstructed panoramas of the turquoise water.

Everything was well planned. On time pick up at the hotel, structured tour. Tour guide was very informative and jolly. Made us aware of the rules at the different places visited specially at the mosque. Tour guide was professio ally dressed and the vehicle is clean. He even gave us water. One little thing, they should have a trash bin inside the van.

Abu Dhabi Half Day City Tour
I booked this trip on Viator as other tour company will only allow min 2 persons booking and I was travelling solo, and I had a great time. I joined a group of another two ladies and one young boy from Canada. This half day tour give you a quick visit to some of the major tourists attractions in Abu Dhabi. I really enjoyed the tour as it wasn’t too rushed. The driver/guide gives us time to explore. Rahim is a friendly guy and explained things as we go. Thank you. I recommend this tour.
